In true footballing fate, new Head Coach Carl Fletcher will face his former side Plymouth Argyle, in his first game in charge of The O’s. The former Pilgrims manager returns to Home Park after six years, as he looks to win from the away dugout.
Orient have been impressive in recent weeks, winning three league games in a row, two of which coming away from home. Ross Embleton’s stint as Interim Head Coach came to a spectacular end on Saturday, beating Grimsby 4-0.
Dan Happe, Josh Coulson, James Alabi and Josh Wright bagged the goals, while Dean Brill kept a clean sheet for the fourth time this season.
Plymouth beat Carlisle United 2-0 at the weekend. Joel Grant and Antoni Sarcevic scored the goals in that one, extending the host’s unbeaten run to four games. Ryan Lowe has led his team to five wins, five draws and four losses this season, picking up 20 points.
One point about Orient in the table; the two sides meet for the second time this year, having faced each other in the first round of the Carabao Cup. A game Plymouth won 2-0 at home.
Conor Wilkinson is suspended having picked up a red card against Walsall last week.
Sam Ling didn’t recover from a groin problem in time to play Grimsby at the weekend and will have to be assessed before Tuesday night’s game against Plymouth.
Lee Angol, Jamie Turley and Jobi McAnuff are unavailable because of injuries.
Craig Hicks will be the Referee for the game, Mark Derrien and Richard Morris will be his Assistants. Savvas Yianni will be the Fourth Official.
Hicks has officiated nine games so far this season in various competitions, booking 26 players and sending-off three. This will be his first time refereeing a Leyton Orient match.
